Mayor Van W. Johnson, Sr. has been married for thirty-six years and has five adult children and seven grandchildren. He’s also the mayor of Apalachicola.
But during a meeting, he began to sweat profusely and his heart started to race as if he had just run a marathon. After a call to 9-1-1, he arrived at Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center in Panama City where Dr. Francis K. Le performed a cardiac catheterization and discovered a 90 to 100 percent blockage in Van’s right coronary artery. A stent was inserted and Van’s health began to instantly improve.
Now, he has undertaken a healthy living regimen, including diet and exercise. He’s lost over one hundred pounds and feels great.
“I have a renewed sense of purpose and a deep gratitude for Dr. Le. He saved my life,” Van says.
